Haul Post!

Oh yes, it's time for another haul post! Most of the hauls in this post are from just before Christmas 2018. A few are from January 2019, and probably belong in my January Sales Haul. But I'll pop them in this post instead. Because, why not? So grab a cuppa and some biccies. It's time to dive back into what I've been buying recently.

5 Reasons Why I'm Looking Forward to Spring

I make no secret of the fact that I am, and always have been, more of an Autumn/Winter kinda gal. But for the first time in my 28 (almost 29) years of life, I've been struggling with SAD during the darker, colder months. And as a result, I'm actually pretty excited for the imminent arrival of Spring. 20th March is the first day of Spring, but as I write this, a week or so before, we're already experiencing some Spring like weather. The sun is shining, the nights are getting lighter, and the temperature is warming up (only slightly, but I'll take it.) Spring is definitely in the air, and I cannot wait for it to arrive in all it's glory. And with that in mind, I thought I'd share just five of the reasons why I'm looking forward to Spring!

Life With A Cat - Four Years On!

This month marks four years since we bought our little tuxedo cat, Harley, home. In some ways, it feels like just yesterday he arrived in our lives and turned everything around. But in other ways, it feels like he's been a part of our family for so much longer. We certainly couldn't picture life without him now, though, that's for sure! I thought I'd share a few photos of a baby Harley - looking back at these photos makes me feel such strong waves of nostalgia. I do miss the kitten phase. He was a whirlwind of energy; tearing around like a thing possessed. And then he'd crash, and fall asleep cradled in my arms, just like a human baby. Now I'm lucky if he lets me pick him up for more than two minutes! He's also now the same age as my husband, or thereabouts, in cat years!

Everybody Wants To Be A Cat!

If you don't already know, I love cats. I have a tuxedo cat called Harley (Quinn or Davidson, depending on whether you ask my husband or me). He's four years old, which is unbelievable to be honest, and we've had him four years since last weekend. 

The Aristocats is one of my all-time favourite Disney films. I've watched it countless times, and know all the lyrics to all the songs. I also have the Marie, Toulouse and Berlioz Tsum Tsums. I think Marie is my favourite, because she has killer attitude, but I also adore Duchess. She's so regal and such a loving mum.

Anyway. The other day, I had the well-known song "Everybody Wants To Be A Cat" stuck in my head. For no apparent reason. And it gave me an idea for a blog post. Because, given half the chance, I'd love to be a cat. So here are five reasons why I want to be a cat.

Haul Post!

I'm pretty sure I've got enough photos/content for at least another four haul posts. And that's assuming I don't buy anything else between now and the next few weeks. Which, let's be honest, isn't going to happen. We all know I'm a shopaholic. And I'm not ashamed to admit it.

I can tell you that today's haul post dates back to before Christmas 2018. Most of the hauls in the following photo come from our Christmas shopping trip to Cardiff. Just so you know I'm not so much of a shopaholic that I've accumulated all this stuff in the last few weeks/months.

Without further ado, here's a little look at what I've been buying recently (as recently as Christmas of 2018, anyway!)

February Book Haul!

It's time for another book haul, ladies and gentlemen (do any gentlemen read my blog? Let me know if you're a male reader. I'm genuinely curious!)

I tried to kid myself that February would be the month I finally stopped buying books (although I still planned to post a monthly book haul, as I have pre-orders arriving every month at the moment). But that was just a monumental lie, wasn't it?

So, here it is. A look at what books I bought in February. And who knows, maybe March is the month I finally get my shit together and stop buying books. A girl can dream, eh?

Lush Mother's Day/Easter Haul!

Although I'm trying, albeit not very hard, to avoid Lush like the plague because, guys, my bathroom resembles a Lush store, I can't resist their collections for special occasions. Not gonna lie, though, I'm a bit disappointed with their Mother's Day and Easter collection this year. No new shower gels/creams, no really exciting bath bombs. I was pleased to see a handful of new shower bombs though!
